Dear Pamela (if I may);
My father, Bernard (Barney) George Japs was a cousin
to Bernard (Barney) Wheaton Japs.
According to our records, Barney W. married Helen F.
Gilligan on Sept 25, 1905. Helen passed away on Aug. 12
1930 in Minn. Minn.
My cousin Clifford Japs did lots of research and made a
wonderful book for us. (Before that, my father and one of his
sisters put together lots of information.) We feel pretty
confident that this information is correct.
Hope that this will help you.
Looking forward to hearing from you.
Sincerely, (cousin) Bernie
